Default Need help with 5100s
Hi all new to the forum. I am about to inherit my dad's 2010 trx 4 and it needs shocks all the way around. I'm wanting to do 5100s all the way around to level it in the front but I haven't found anywhere that says if the rear 5100s need at least one inch of lift to fit correctly. So the question is will the rear 5100s fit without a rear lift?

Yes they will fit. They are capable of handling up to1" of lift but are fine for stock height as well.

Awesome, what setting do I need to set the front at to get a perfect level or slight squat and what would be the largest tire size I could clear?

I'm 2.1 and rear 0.75. I just did 295/65/20 nitto G2 on the OEM wheels with no spacers. Zero issues! Mounted height is 3" over OEM.
